"The AVID Pulsare II is the best phono amp that I have ever heard. It's concentration on removing distortion from the hi-fi chain is the primary source of my enthusiasm. As such, it remains true to the primary source, ridding the signal of noise and maintaining a colour-free presentation with great focus."
We have this on permanent demonstration. Home demos also available.
Best solid state phono stage I have heard. Comes very close to valve like presentation, so ideal if you prefer not to be so hands on as you are with valve amps. Break in period is very long, up to 100 hours before treble smooths out and bass deepens and tightens. You will clearly hear when this happens. Has a very revealing nature so bright cartridges not advised, I use Koetsu Red Signature, and Nagaoka MP500 as back up. Both work well into this stage because of the flexibility on offer.
